Lil Yachty was the first guest on Complex's new show Everyday Struggle, and things got interesting when he sat down to talk debate hip-hop culture, the music industry, and those controversial Biggie comments with Joe Budden, DJ Akademiks, and Nadeska.

Yachty remains open about how he views himself and his brand, and where these things fit in with hip-hop culture, but Budden has a different take on it. Things get confrontational when Yachty speaks on his record deal, and while it looks like a tense conversation at times, there are a lot of interesting points brought up, and seeing Budden and Yachty's wildly different perspectives is highly entertaining. Watch above, and see what happened when we asked hip-hop fans around New York about Lil Yachty below.
